“I am a stay-at-home mother caring for my daughters, one who has epilepsy and another who is premature. This roof is a life-changer,” says homeowner, Mechelle Harris.
Harris has lived in her home for 5 years with her four children. This week she will be celebrating in her because her roof will be replaced with the help of three community-minded organizations.
Maumee Valley Habitat for Humanity, through its Repair program, with the support of donated product from Owens Corning and additional support from the City of Toledo, Department of Neighborhoods will celebrate its 150th roof replacement in Lucas County. Maumee Valley Habitat for Humanity’s roof repair program began in 2015 with the strong support of Owens Corning and the City of Toledo. Given the continued need of area homeowners, this program continues to expand. Maumee Valley Habitat for Humanity completed 50 roof replacements in 2018 as part of this partnership. Owens Corning continues to donate the materials for the roof repair program.
